Future and in incomplete tenses in a similar process as for

duplicatives.



It is difficult to formulate a principle to which of the verbs

/a   / prefixes in negative sense,



Eg. will not sit = /a lecca :/



m



will not walk = /ancu : g a :/



will not fall = /a lo : wa/



will not pull out = /a ge : nu/



will not reep » /aso :/



will Bot bargain = /abe : ra/



will not bath = /akima :/



(All the duplicative verbs collected are prefixed with /a /



in future tense).



2.6      The end /  gi/, / - gu/ will change into /cca/ aloBg  with the

prefix /a / in the BOB duplicative intraBsitive verbs to form



negative.



/da : gi/ = /ada : cca/

/le : gi/ = /ale : cca/

/bu : gi/ = /abu : cca/



/odi : gi/ = /odi : cca/

any phonatic change wh«a negative /a / is preixed,

/gudiya/ * /a gudiya :.



/ge : nu/ = /age :

/MS : wo/ SB /aso :/

/kima ;/ * /a kima/
